Ed's P.E.I. Adventure!

On the way to Prince Edward Island, we met someone that tagged along our trip. His name is Ed. Ed followed us everywhere.

Ed really enjoyed his day to the beach. Since we all arrived so late to PEI, we didn't do anything else after the beach.

We had a lot of things planned up for the second day. All of them in Cavendish. So, we had to drive a lot. Ed had a very good seat in the car.

Ed's first stop was at Grandpa's Antique Photo Studio. Ed sadly didn't have enough money to get his picture taken.

After a quick stop at the Cavendish Boardwalk, Ed went to the Ripley's Believe it or Not museum, and the Cracker Creek Mining Co.. The Cracker Creek Mining Co. was a lot more fun than expected. Ed got a lot of great stones, and even a few fossils. He really likes his Shark Tooth.

The day was cloudy and extremely humid, so a stop to cooldown was welcomed. I wonder if Ed knew his limonade had alcohol in it...

Regardless, Ed hit the bed at the hotel pretty early and pretty hard...

Ed's last day on the island was a busy one, so he had to pack pretty early. Ed suprisingly had more stuff than all of us.

In Charlottetown, Ed suggested we first do the Harbour Hippo. It's a LARC (Lighter, Amphibious Resupply, Cargo) from the Vietnam War that goes through the key interest points of Charlottetown and then in the harbour. This is where Ed had the most fun!

There was a lot of people on the Harbour Hippo, but Ed didn't mind once he got a lollipop.

After a bunch of shopping, Ed had one last suggestion before we leave the island: The Cows Creamery. Ed be eating another ice cream for quite some time. There's just something about having 16% of the ice cream being Butter Fat. Don't get him wrong, Ed really found it delicious. Ed was really stuffed afterwards.

Before getting on the Confederation Bridge to head back home, we had to stop at the little tourist village before the Toll. Ed needed to stop at the ATM for the Toll. Ed couldn't help but to stare at the slice of the bridge.

Now Ed is extremely sleepy and needs a lot of rest.
